About Us

Welcome to esfoley designs! We are so glad you are interested in learning more about us.

esfoley designs is the embodiment of a shared vision developed over thirty years by creative daughter/ mother team, Emily and Polly Foley. Raised in Woodstock, Vermont, Emily enjoyed the company of famed artists and creative spirits from a very early age, and these individuals instilled a design sense, a unique aesthetic, and the artisanal skills to translate those into a distinctive, hand-crafted yet practical line of children’s clothing and home accessories, all of the highest quality. Those same skills, coupled with a love of pugs, several of whom appear on www.esfoleydesigns.com, led to a playful and attractive line extension of dog and cat accessories over the years as well. So, after a two-decade career in Boston’s financial district coupled with small-batch production for friends and family, Emily and Polly combined homes on Cape Cod in 2010 and the pair devoted themselves beginning in 2016 to the full-time business of esfoley designs.

Over the past thirty years, Emily assembled from large wholesalers and tiny boutiques alike across the eastern US a large and diverse collection of 100% cotton fabrics, many rare or discontinued, spanning the spectrum of color, theme, and texture. That unequaled selection of fabric inputs, coupled with a style best described as contemporary and sophisticated, with clever details hinting at whimsy and New England tradition, permit Emily to marry season and fashion into coordinated one of a kind collections in her private studio workshop, each piece hand assembled to be a keepsake, handed down across generations. Woman-owned, family-run, and focused on the values of traditional craftsmanship and creative freedom, esfoley designs represents the very best of New England’s boutique craft sector, collected by discerning buyers with an eye to distinctive style and fashion.

esfoley designs products are available in limited distribution at well-known gift boutiques on Cape Cod and beyond, and on their website, www.esfoleydesigns.com
